Residents evacuated as water is released from Friendship Lake dam”

Water was released from the Friendship Dam in Adams County on objective early this morning.

Gervais says, however, County Highway N North of County Highway J is still closed due to dam water being released Saturday morning. People are allowed to return to their homes if they wish.

DNR, State Patrol, the Adams County Sheriff's Office and the Friendship Fire Dept. are on the scene.

In a news release Saturday morning, Land Information Officer Jodi Helgeson says all northbound traffic is being rerouted via County Highway J EAST to County Highway G to State Highway 21 West.

The American Red Cross has set up what they call a "reception center" a the Friendship Village Hall.

The high levels of water were caused by recent rainfall. Water is flowing through the dam at a normal rate, which regulates the levels of Friendship Lake. On Monday, the Adams County Highway Department will work with the Wis. DOT to inspect the road and will determine if and when it will be reopened.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch in effect through this evening for the little Roche A Cri Creek Area and areas downstream of Friendship Lake to Castle Rock Lake.
